They are friends, co-workers, sisters, cousins, mothers, girlfriends, wives and all manner of other things – and on 12 July, the Riverside Rugby Club is hosting a community event just for them.
The Ladies Day Fundraiser will provide a fun day out while also paying tribute to women all over, for an entry fee of $65. When you’ve got a slice of Bulimba real estate, who needs ideas for what to do on a Saturday night?
If the price seems steep, bear in mind it’s all for a good cause. The ultimate purpose of the day is to raise money and awareness of ovarian cancer.
In 2014, around 1,470 women are predicted to be diagnosed with ovarian cancer, according to Cancer Australia figures. So these intrepid Brisbanites deserve a round of applause – and our support – for their efforts.
Along with getting to watch the Riverside Rebels taking on the Brisbane Hustlers, there will also be fundraising events, such as raffles and a jersey auction, with all the profits to go to Ovarian Cancer Australia.
Not only that, but the ticket price will give you access to the marquee, plus beer, wine and canapes – doesn’t seem so steep now, does it?
